Two of them play one another today, on a day in which thunderstorms are expected to roll through the region in the late morning.There’s also a wind advisory from early afternoon through tomorrow morning.
There is a win advisory in effect in Manhasset. Defending Class C state champion Manhasset (12-0) hosts rival Cold Spring Harbor (13-0) at 6 p.m. in the aforementioned battle of unbeatens.
